Within walking distance you can enjoy cruises on Mission Bay as well as nightly entertainment.

Since the weather is favorable all year, your choices are endless. Come and enjoy the beach and all that sunny San Diego has to offer.

Peace of Mind while you travel: * Why tie up a credit card with a security deposit when you could be using that money for your well deserved vacation? We offer optional Accidental Damage Insurance, in-lieu of a Security Deposit. When you include this insurance with your reservation, the cost and repair of covered accidental damage will be handled by us! What does it cover? Unintentional damage to the vacation rental during your stay, up to $1,500, including things like carpet spills, furniture tears, broken lamps, and even pet damage in pet-friendly homes! *

Travel Insurance Available: * Protect your vacation investment from unexpected events. Did you know that vacation insurance could cover you if....

... you or a loved one gets sick (even if they aren't traveling with you)?

... you need medical treatment while traveling?

... a blizzard or hurricane prevents you from starting your vacation or forces you to leave early?

... a family member back home passes away and you must return early from your vacation?

... your luggage is lost or delayed by the airline?

... you've lost your job or have been laid off?

About Patricia Arbaugh

I love the beach and couldn't think of a better place to own a vacation home. I know you'll enjoy it as much as I do!

Patricia Arbaugh purchased this condo in 2003

Why Patricia Arbaugh chose San Diego County

Mission Beach is unique with it's 3.5 miles of wide white-sand beach and boardwalk. San Diego has the best year-round weather.

We had a wonderful family vacation due to this beach condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults stayed at this property in early October and it was a lovely experience. The location was perfect, we parked our car and didn't move it except to get a flat fixed. It's a 3 minute walk to Belmont park and plenty of restaurants within close walking distance. Rented bicycles were our only needed transportation. The three bedrooms had plenty of space for 6 adults and we had lovely ocean breezes to keep us cool. The security door at the bottom of the stairs was a nice bonus so we could keep the doors open while we were there. Everything worked perfectly and Patricia was prompt at answering the couple questions we had. If we need another 3 bedroom rental we will definitely use this one again.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our San Diego stay here on Mission Beach and loved every minute of it! Great house and wonderful location. We loved watching the surf from the bedroom and rooftop balconies every day. It was so nice to be close to everything and having the convenient parking and a place to store our bikes was definitely a perk. We would certainly come back here and stay again!

Great location, view, and floor plan

  • 5 of 5

This Mission Beach / Mission Bay home worked perfectly for our family vacation. Though not right on the boardwalk we could see the beach and ocean from the home and roof top deck. I recommend this home.

Beautiful property - a great getaway

  • 5 of 5

Patricia was so easy to work with in getting set up and answered my questions from the very beginning. She was also very considerate in warning us of some construction that was moving through her area and how it would impact our parking. When we got to the place, it was even more comfortable and beautiful than we expected. It was the perfect place for us to relax on Memorial Day weekend and as a mini-reunion with friends. We had a fun bunch, but everyone was very respectful of the house because it was just such a pleasure to stay in. We were all attending a wedding at the Hilton San Diego, minutes away, and her house was the perfect place distance-wise but also as a place to rest our head in between festivities. Finally, the refund was very timely after our stay.

When we look for rental properties, we like to try new places, but this was such a solid pick that we would absolutely book here again in the future if trying to stay in this area again. Thank you, Patricia!
